Paying for College
WIA Adult & Dislocated Worker Programs
Paying for college can be a difficult maze of information through which to find your way. However, if
you are seeking training funding for tuition and supplies, please make sure to investigate funding at
the Region 2000 Workforce Center, a member of CVCC's Workforce Solutions & Community Education
division. These funds are not restricted to use at CVCC.
An individual must qualify either through the Dislocated Worker program or the Adult worker program of
the Workforce Investment Act to access these funds. Eligibility includes several steps, and it may
take 2-6 weeks to determine the program's ability to help with your schooling costs. Applicants will
be given a list of documents needed to complete the application process.
In addition to tuition, as defined in the WIA, financial assistance for supportive services may be
made available to enrolled adults and dislocated workers if it is determined that such service(s) are
necessary to enable the student to participate in and complete the program activities, that it is
beyond the ability of the student to pay, and that such assistance is unavailable from other
Some of the services that students can receive assistance with during training include:
- Child Care
- Automobile Repairs/Maintenance
- Medical services
For more information on eligibility and application for the WIA Adult or Dislocated Worker programs,
please call 434-455-5940 or visit the Center located on Memorial Avenue in The Plaza.
Individuals may also seek assistance in applying for paying for college by contacting Career
Connections office located on the CVCC campus. This office can assist CVCC applicants in
applying for federal assistance (and completing the FAFSA), and can provide general information about
student loans and other grants that may be available. Applicants to CVCC are also urged to work with
the College's Financial Aid office when applying to Central Virginia Community College.
